PHOEBE WEBB

Modalities of Expression
November 3 - November 24, 2015
Reception: Thursday November 5, 2015 6-8 PM

American artist Phoebe Webb does not assign her artwork to any one style of expression, nor has she been influenced consciously by any particular artist or movement. Instead, Webb uses the unique practice of observing changes in light and color through prismatic glass, and as a result, many of her paintings reflect an ethereal and heterogeneous quality. Describing her preparatory process, the artist states, “I slap leftover palette paint, a 'palette stew,' onto canvas, paper, or old books to explore connections with fresh inspirations. Transitioning into actual painting I pile up details, eliminate others while checking composition and relationships. It’s push and pull.” Despite a variety in subject matter, Webb’s paintings share a deeply sensuous nature.

Due to her father's and husband’s careers in the military, Webb moved throughout her childhood and career, which challenged her to remain creative through transitory times. She recalls transforming the aft cabin of a converted Coast Guard cutter into a small art studio, and later adopting a breakfast nook in Argentina for her work. Webb has exhibited her work in Buenos Aires and across the United States, where she currently resides.
